Thank you SO much for reading my Out of the Closet posts. Even if you didn’t comment, I’m glad you shared in the experience. It was pretty cathartic to write. I actually cried after writing the third one. They were happy tears though, don’t worry!
I also put out into the universe that I’d like to update and work on expanding my blog – so expect some Big Girl changes in the next few months! You know, when I can hire a professional web developer…and pay them in scones.
Speaking of putting things out into the universe – I’ve been spending my mornings with Deepak Chopra.
That’s right. This guy.
Mr. Chopra and his teachers have been leading a 21 Day Spring Meditation Challenge. I’m on Day 3, as of today. It’s been great so far. They email you a daily podcast. Play, close your eyes and listen! You can also answer prompting questions at the end of the podcast. You can sign up at the link above if you’re interested.
I think it’s a great way to get into a meditation habit and an even better way to begin the day. I’ve found that I tend to be calmer, connected and more focused when I start with a meditation in the morning.
Case in point: Yesterday I had to go back to work for the first time since being radioactive. Wednesday night I was really sad and lamented to the Dude about how I didn’t want to goooooooooo (just like that). Thursday AM, I pull out of my driveway and head off to work. One block away from my house, my oil plug falls out of my car and 4 gallons of oil drained from my Camry!
Viola! No work!
Meditation also helps you face challenges. Like when you want to kick the workers at Jiffy Lube in the face because they clearly didn’t pay enough attention and could have seriously damaged your car had you not been so close to home.
Not a problem for me. I’m a meditating maven, man. But you can be sure I also “expressed my intentions:
The Dude and I are celebrating his belated birthday in Portsmouth, NH on Saturday. I can’t wait to do some celebrating! I hope your Friday is off to a great start, with or without Deepak.
What are you celebrating this weekend?!
